The Mills Soccer team celebrated its two seniors prior to today's game against visiting Menlo College. Sarah Westbrook, a three year player, and Tonya Bruce, a new player this year, were both honored as members of the Class of 2014. Today's game also celebrated breast cancer awareness month, with the players wearing pink jerseys to promote breast cancer awareness.
The Oaks struck early on a goal by Natalie Ingram (San Jose, CA) and kept up the pressure throughout the game. Despite Menlo's relentless offense, sophomore keeper Tayla Muise, along with the Mills defense, stopped several breakaways and allowed Menlo to convert only one of eleven corner kicks. Menlo netted ten goals, while Muise made eleven saves and cut off several crosses. Mills had several opportunities to score, including a beautiful shot by Kaycie Simpson that curved away from the goal at the last second.
Simpson and Kay Singh both finished with shots for Mills. For Menlo, Jocelyn Aguilar (San Jose, CA) led her team with three goals and two assists, while Ingram and Erica Hunting (Redding, CA) each finished the day with two goals and an assist. The Cyclones will be off until October 18, when they travel to Bethesda University for two games.
